You could try
/bind_save_file WeirdFileNameOfYourChoice.txt
to write a file (with your current binds) to your hard disk. ('m not sure about the underscores in that command, I currently don't have the game available, but autocomplete will give you the correct command.)

And then search your entire hard drive (everything! not just your documents folder!) for WeirdFileNameOfYourChoice.txt and Windows should find the file and thus the correct location for your bind files.


Are you using STO via Steam?

Steam is an online game shop. But since you don't know what it is, you are most likely not using it.
I just mentioned it because Steam puts the games you download from there in its own directory subtree, which would explain why the default folder is not working for you.

Thank you for the help though, it's getting frustrating trying to bind an entire row to a key and only getting four spaces.

I solved my Keybinding issues...now I can do the entire first row of my abilities with two keys. The problem is how can I get Shield Distribution onto a keybind?

cliftona91, If you are looking for the file as a .txt file using notepad, you won't find it. STO doesn't save the bindfile with an extension. If you use windows explorer, you should be able to find it in the "Live" folder with the name used.

You can also use the .txt extension when saving to assist further:

/bind_save_file filename.txt


RE Shield Distribution

+power_exec Distribute_Shields

this will cause your shield to be EVENLY distributed amongst all four facings.

In a bindflle:

Home "+power_exec Distribute_Shields"

In the chat window

/bind Home +power_exec Distribute_Shields

I have tried to /bind_save_file <filename>.txt and nothing is saved anywhere. I don't get a response from the system saying it was successful. Also, my screenshots are not being saved anymore. Can anyone help?

Id like to say that the order of which Ability is popped first is totally random and putting the first priority ability that needs to be popped at the last part of the keybind sentence it doesnt work all the time if ever.

its all random and u cannot rely on it thats why Rapid fire 3+2 on a spacebar ram bind isnt really that optimal at all...

Ok I'm new to the whole Keybind and all of this looks like gibberish... It was a sort of shock I guess.

What I'm asking for is to be able to my 4 EPtXs skills, balance shields, and fire weapons all on the Space Bar. If anyone can assist me in this, it would be so ever loving awesome! Start slow and move to the hard stuff
